Final Fantasy Week Kicks Off with a Rikku and Yuna Cosplay Duo!

A young, positive and outspoken Al Bhed girl and a teenage summoner, Rikku and Yuna are Final Fantasy’s ultimate one true pairing; best friends accompanying one another on their journeys.


Rikku is the daughter of Cid, the leader of the Al Bhed faction, whom we meet on board the salvage ship in Final Fantasy X. Upon joining Yuna’s pilgrimage, Rikku eschews the identity concealing diving suit for a pair of flared green shorts, and a basic orange tank. And to top if off, a giant gauntlet on her right arm. She’s loyal to Yuna and affectionately calls her “Yunie” on many occasions. Yuna is a summoner. She’s kind-hearted, loyal, honest and a positive humanitarian who wants to see the best in others ad is convicted to completing the task at hand. Like most Summoners, Yuna is a devout follower of Yevon’s teachings. She hides her fear and sadness, and encourages friends to express themselves in her place.


What’s special about cosplay is how it brings people together; couples, best friends, brothers and sisters. Whatever the relationship, cosplay brings people close together and creates memories that last forever, even on photographs. American cosplayers Rose and Kitty create AurumCosplay; best friends with a passion for bringing to life their favourite video game and anime characters. Rikku and Yuna are loyal characters and the greatest of friends in game, and Aurum cosplay portray the beauty and loyalty of these characters albeit with their fantastically crafted cosplays.
